There are risks that you assume when dealing with other users (including those who may be acting under false pretenses). You agree that all of these risks are borne by you, and not the Company. The Company does not control the behavior of users of the Service or the information or other content provided by other users that is made available through the Service. As a result, the Company does not guarantee or endorse the authenticity, quality, safety, or legality of any items offered or sold, the truth or accuracy of any listings, or the ability of investors to invest in items. We cannot assure that all transactions will be completed. The Company does not guarantee the ability or intent of users to fulfill their obligations in any transactions. Additionally, the Company does reserve the right to review deals posted by Sponsors and may reject them based on incomplete or incorrect information.

PLEASE USE CAUTION AND COMMON SENSE WHEN DEALING WITH OTHER USERS OR OTHERWISE USING THE WEB SITE.
3.3 Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means, subject to the exceptions set forth in the following sentence, any information or data disclosed by the Company or a sponsor or an investor (the “Disclosing Party”) to you (the “Receiving Party”) that the Disclosing Party has marked as confidential or proprietary unless such information is the subject of any of the exceptions set forth in the following sentence. Information and data will not be deemed Confidential Information hereunder if such information: (a) is known to the Receiving Party prior to receipt from the Disclosing Party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the Disclosing Party; (b) becomes known (independently of disclosure by the Disclosing Party) to the Receiving Party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the Disclosing Party; (c) becomes publicly known or otherwise ceases to be secret or confidential, except through a breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party; or (d) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
The Receiving Party acknowledges that it will have access to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. The Receiving Party agrees that it will not (i) use any such Confidential Information in any way except for the exercise of its rights and performance of its obligations in connection with the Services, or (ii) disclose any such Confidential Information to any party, other than furnishing such Confidential Information to its employees who are required to have access to the Confidential Information in connection with the exercise of Receiving Party’s rights or performance of its obligations in connection with Services. The Receiving Party agrees that it will not allow any unauthorized person access to Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, and that Receiving Party will take all action reasonably necessary to protect the confidentiality of such Confidential Information, including implementing and enforcing procedures to minimize the possibility of unauthorized use or copying of such Confidential Information. In the event that the Receiving Party is required by law to make any disclosure of any of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, by subpoena, judicial or administrative order or otherwise, the Receiving Party shall first give written notice of such requirement to the Disclosing Party, and shall permit the Disclosing Party to intervene in any relevant proceedings to protect its interests in the Confidential Information, and provide full cooperation and assistance to the Disclosing Party in seeking to obtain such protection.
Investors will be invited to view real estate deals, the terms of which are Confidential Information (“Confidential Deal Terms”).
